    They have multiple sizes that can get into everything... the smallest one is PERFECT for honeycomb plastic areas, the medium one is great for small clearance areas and also good for door jambs... Great kit!

    EZ brushes were originally designed for motorcycle wheel cleaning, not the riggers of automotive. Although I loved the EZ brushes, they broke on me every couple months. Brush snapping off handle and rubber tip falling off. The Daytona brush was created by the same company, but is for automotive. Much more sturdy compared to the EZ brush. I've been using my full sized one for a year now and no issues. They just came out with the Daytona Jr like yesterday and gonna try that out soon.

    Indeed, but the Wheel Woolies are a set of 3, not a single brush.
    Plus there's no metal in the design - no coated cheap to manufacture twisted wire - and you don't tend to get covered in crap when you pull the brush back out from between spokes.
    Every, and I genuinely mean every radial bristle wheel brush I've had the misfortune of using prior to the Woolies, has splattered me in some shape or form.
    Not nice when you're using particularly nasty chemicals to deal with serious grime build-up.

    A number of the pros here in the UK bought these when they were first on the market (at an equivalent price of $65-70) a few years back, and only now are they thinking of buying a new set, now that they are being remanufactured.

    As good as some brushes are, there's nothing that touches these, even when using not so dilute brick acid.

    That is why the much lauded Paul D bought a load of sets when they ceased production of them, and vxrmarc bought 5 sets from the GB I organised on DW very recently.
    As well as Jay who posts up the TVR details he's become synonymous with, and others whom you won't know from here, the brushes will outlast practically everything else on the market, hence why they were pleased to see their return to production once again.

    So before you make your next wheel brush(es) purchase, give some serious thought to the Woolies - they are that good!

    Yeah, I thought about these as well, because when you think about it, they don't have gaps in between bristles, like the standard brushes do.

    Might have to order me a set. I think I posted up the thread on here about them, when PAC started selling them.

    ok im convinced, i just hope PAC go easy on the shipping - they dont look like the handle can be removed for tighter packing

    if not, is there anywhere else i can buy the woolie 3 pack from?

    If you want, I can send you a set from the GB lot for AU $78 delivered/signed for.

    I saw a similar brush (cuz it was Tampico) at a local detail shop heer in NJ and I was nervous about it because the tampico is stiff when its dry. The shop owner assured me it would be the best wheel brush I ever tried.
    Is it really that good?

    I am on my second EZ as well and the handle is already feeling a little weak after just 3 mos. Guess I will have to flip to the Daytona soon as well. I love how soft they are and very efficient, just need more durability. Other broken ones are relegated to exhaust tips now or engine bays.

    just received my wheel woolies and VERY dissappointed

    the size of the larger wheel brush is laughable, and nowhere near as big as the advertised pics make it seem. And this is after i spread out the fibres

    Eimann Fabrik Wheel Woolies

    look at my pic, its not even longer than a pen, hell its not that much longer than the medium sized brush with fibres compressed - pathetic

    dont waste your money guys

    I have a set of those and find the small and medium brushes work great. Haven't found a use for the biggest one yet.

    I have it all, but the audi wheel brush I got off my dealership is the best $5 I spend on detailing tools for wheels

    domino Welcome to Detailing

    i was expecting the head to be at least 1/3 the size of the stem as per the misleading pics
    - and also at least 5 times as large as the medium size

    let me run the comparo again...


    vs what they're shipping out

    i got jibbed, im happy to admit it :doh:

    I guess i'll get the ointment ready as I am waiting for mines to come in...we had a little GB down here a couple of weeks ago from a local detailer, and I ordered the set too!

    If it's really that bad as you say, then maybe i'll put it to use as a glorified duster to wax my jars of nubas. Thanks for the heads up though.

    the fibres feel harsh to me, maybe they'll soften in water/soap...... im going to use them for under the guards and stick with my trusty proven EZ-Brush for wheel barrel duties
